How Did your Learning help you improve and learn to draw more realistically?
On my first drawing there are no shadows every thing looks 2-D and there were no highlights. Then we started doing some practice for are self-portrait first we did a value scale to see the different shades you can do with a pencil. Then we did a gradation scale to learn how, to make one shade darker to a shade lighter with out a barrier to do this we needed a blending stump that helped us a lot in other activities but I will get to that later. After that we needed to start practicing our eyes, nose, mouth which is what we did, for this we needed to understand how to do value and how to do gradation, because we needed to make it look 3-D. With all that information and practice we started with knowing all the things we need to make our self portrait.
What 2 other things would you do differently to make your drawing even more better?
I would make my smile and mouth more realistic because when I do my mouth I usually and in my drawing I make it pointy or really bumpy and also it doesn’t really look realistic. I could make it less pointy/bumpy and make the mouth line less noticeable and make it on not two far away from the nose but not to close. i would also do more shadows so it would b more realistic, and also make them darker, but the problem is that I am scared I will make it to dark so I make shadows lightly so thats what I want to improve in my drawing.
Which 2 learning words best describe you as an artist during this unit?
The two learning words that best describes me is open-minded and respect. Open-minded because when I was asking what I could improve I was open-minded to what everyone was saying and what the teacher was saying, and all those suggestions help when I was fixing what i needed. Respect because I was using respect when I needed to help other to do suggestions for them and I used this when I needed to listen.I was also helped people who needed and who ask me, I always payed attention to the class and who was speaking and followed all the directions.
